Durham - Outreach

Engineering Outreach

The Durham School of Architectural Engineering and Construction offers a variety of engineering outreach activities, such as camps, interactive classroom presentations, and tours for elementary, middle and high school students. These programs serve as an avenue to foster an interest in engineering education using fun activities relevant to the world found in their own backyard, while applying basic science and math principles. When pairing a fun learning environment with an engineering focused curriculum, students are encouraged to continue exploring the STEM fields.

Engineering Ambassador Network
The Nebraska Engineering Ambassador Network is a student-led initiative to promote engineering in K-12 educational environments. Student representatives visit local and regional high schools, everywhere from Omaha to Kansas and beyond.

Do you have a love for math and science? Do you want to be a leader in the "building" of tomorrow’s future? Omaha and Lincoln area high school students (grades 9-12) are invited to participate in a three day activity packed summer engineering camp. Learn how cool women are in construction!
Engineering Explorer Post
Explorer Posts, sponsored by The Boy Scouts of America, introduce students (age 14 to 20) to career fields and provides them with the resources and opportunities to develop skills in their interested fields. Students experience hands-on learning under the mentorship of adult volunteers. Also known as Career Exploring and Learning for Life, the program provides the encouraging relationships and personal development to increase student success and well-being.

Day lighting, acoustical elements, the impact of light on designs and structural integrity are just a sampling of the engineering elements presented and then applied in these engineering outreach activities. What better way to earn an Engineering badge then through a STEM focused hands-on project that leaves participants asking for more time at the end of the day?
